Until recently emotional intelligence was largely ignored or dismissed. But with volatility, uncertainty, complexity,and ambiguity confronting us on a daily basis, past experience and education is often not enough to achieve and thrive in today's hyper-competitive business environment. Many studies have confirmed that the difference between top performers (especially at the executive and management level) and mediocre ones is emotional intelligence.

During this podcast, Ira S Wolfe interviews emotional intelligence expert and executive coach Jennifer Zamecki from Well-Run Consulting.  They discuss what emotional intelligence is, how to test for EQ, and how individuals can develop it. Ira and Jennifer even venture into the emotional intelligence of presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as that of the Millennial Generation.
